Planning Ahead

McKiernan & Sons offer an excellent facility for those wanting to pre-arrange their funeral or make pre-paid funeral plans.

Prepaid Funeral Plans

Everyone has a different idea about the kind of funeral arrangements they would like.  With pre-planning, you can be sure your wishes are granted. The greatest value of pre-planning a funeral, is that you are given the opportunity to sit down, consider the options on offer and decide on the best services suited to your needs.

People choose to take a prepaid funeral plan for some of the following reasons:

  • To ensure the details for their funeral are in place
  • To make financial provision for the cost of their funeral
  • To reduce the value of savings while alive to enable qualification for state benefits
  • Simply to 'get one's house in order'
  • To reduce the burden on family members at a difficult and stressful time

We offer Perfect Choice Funeral Plans which are administered by Ecclesiastical Planning Services. All plan monies are held securely in whole of life assurance polices, arranged by Ecclesiastical, and ring-fenced to pay for your funeral when the time comes. This ensures all funds are properly protected.

Perfect Choice Funeral Plans are carried out by members of the NAFD, who are required to comply with a strict Code of Practice. This helps to ensure your funeral will be of the highest possible standards.

You may like to visit the Perfect Choice or NAFD websites for more details in respect of these institutions.

Pre Arrangement

This gives the client an opportunity to discuss and detail their wishes without any payment. These records will be kept on file and the client and next of kin will be provided with a copy. All payments would be made in the future, after the funeral, by your family or from your estate in the usual way.

This gives the client peace of mind that their wishes will be carried out, it can also be helpful and often therapeutic if your family and friends can follow your wishes after death.
